Spain: La Liga Weekend Review

Karim Benzema rescued Real Madrid as they enjoyed a 1-0 victory over Real Mallorca. Espanyol boosted their hopes of a place in next season's Champions League as they came from a goal down to beat Getafe 3-1 in Madrid. Villarreal climbed to third place with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Real Sociedad. Barcelona beat Racing Santander 3-0 on Saturday. Goals from Pedro, after barely a minute of play, and Messi - from the penalty spot - gave the Catalans a 2-0 lead at the break. Andres Iniesta ensured all three points early in the second half for Barca, who made it 55 points from a possible 60 in the league this season.
